I have many things to be grateful for this year. But I'm going to narrow it down to a few of the biggest in this post. I'm trying to adopt a more positive outlook on life in general and remember no matter what cards you get dealt, make the best of them. It's not always easy, but it is possible.

First and foremost I'm thankful for my mom's health. Over the summer we found out she had bladder cancer. This was the second time in the last four years she's waged battle. In September she started a rigorous chemotherapy treatment with the goal of containing the cancer to the bladder and eventually removing the infected organ. 

My mom and dad
A week ago my mom underwent her final chemo treatment and on Monday we got word that the chemo did its job. It's been a huge burden lifted, and now we're asking for continued thoughts, prayers and well wishes as "Memaw" gears up for January's surgery. So many friends and even strangers have been extremely supportive. For that, I'll be forever grateful. Thank you simply isn't enough.

Holiday World 
I'm also thankful for my wife and kids. Raising teenagers and a tween is no picnic, but I couldn't think of a better partner in this life mission than my wife Lisa. We've had some good times this year including a trip to Disney World over Spring Break and some closer to home excursions like Garden of the Gods and Holiday World. It's been a good year and I'm looking forward to celebrating Christmas too. 

News 3 This Morning fam
When I'm not a home, I'm at work. My work family is a true blessing too. We laugh and argue together just like a real family. I'm grateful to have the opportunity to be a part of an amazing team and being a part of the WSIL Family for nearly 13 years has been a great ride.

Craftbeericans on location
I've got some amazing friends too. From my Craftbeericans buddies to Yellow Donkey racers to my friends from all other walks of life, I always have a good time. I've also made a lot of new friends this year through Stride Pro Wrestling. It's never a dull moment for sure.

Finally, thanks to all of you. Since creating My 1-2-3 Cents in 2010, I've seen steady growth in readers and listeners on the podcast. I'm humbled that people care enough to read and share my thoughts on everything from pro wrestling to the crazy adventures in my life. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.
